From the CEO

Dear Friends, I always love it when I meet former Camp Fire kids and hear their stories of how Camp Fire made a difference in their lives. They tell me things like: “I learned how to get along with all kinds of people,”; “I learned how to paddle a canoe!”; “I learned not to give up when something is hard, but to find a different way of doing it,”; “I learned to make healthier choices about exercise and food,” or “I learned that adults care about me.” Each story is heartwarming and special, and each story reaffirms that our mission is important—and it is working! Every day, through our Before and After School Program, Community Centers, summer camps and Rural Program, Camp Fire Alaska is providing opportunities for our youth to find the best in themselves and others, discover their sparks­—the things that really excite their minds and spirits—and encourage them to set goals and believe they can achieve them. We at Camp Fire are providing a foundation of caring and support from which youth can reach and grow and truly thrive. Thank you for all you do to make our work possible.

Barbara Dubovich Barbara Dubovich CEO

Discovering the Best in Themselves “A teacher told me that two children in our program have class together and have been known to fight and have conflict at school. She said that they have been playing together without issues recently and when she asked where they learned to share, they said ‘We learned it at Camp Fire’.” – Before & After School Program Site Director

Who We Are • In 2013, Camp Fire Alaska served more than 5,000 children across the state of Alaska • 376 youth from 235 families received $147,564 in program scholarships • 83% of parents surveyed said that knowing their child is safe and well cared-for at Camp Fire’s programs provides them peace of mind, so they can relax and be more productive at work • 89% of parents surveyed said they valued our caring and professional staff and high-quality programming

Helping Working Families “As a parent, it makes me feel good that my daughter has a safe as well as fun and nurturing environment after school while I’m at work.” – Camp Fire Parent “Camp Fire helps me stay sane! It takes the pressure off me about my work schedule, and my son loves it.” – Camp Fire Parent “I’m so thankful that my child has a safe place to go after school. I can work a job with normal hours as a single parent. Thank You!” – Camp Fire Parent

Growing Social & Emotional Competence “My son is sociable, well adjusted and takes responsibility for his own behavior choices.” – Camp Fire Parent “The staff interact with the children and create a true commuity where everyone is accepted and the expectations and boundaries are clear. “ – Camp Fire Parent “My daughter has come out of her shell and is more social and talkative with others.” – Camp Fire Parent 4 4


Before & After School

After School Program

• Camp Fire’s Before and After School Programs are located in 28 elementary schools (more than half the elementary schools in the Anchorage School District), 8 of which are located in Title 1 schools • We served more than 1,300 children a day in 2013 • 87% of youth surveyed agreed with the statement: “I am able to show others at Camp Fire what is special and unique about me.”

Step-It-Up-2-Thrive

In-Service Full Day Program

Step-It-Up-2-Thrive is a theory of youth development and change that is based on identifying sparks–the interests, skills or talents that bring each individual child to life—then developing a growth mindset to allow change to happen. This involves setting goals and believing they can do new things, encouraging self-reflection about what can help them succeed, and understanding the risk factors in the way. Thrive helps youth develop goal management skills to help them keep moving ahead (by trying again and trying new things), even when faced with challenges. Camp Fire was the first US national youth development organization to implement this methodology. In Alaska, Camp Fire began Thrive programming in 2012, incorporating the approach at several Before & After School Program sites. In 2013 the agency began expanding it to other programs.

Discovering a Spark

“A child experiencing some challenging behaviors asked if she could bring in a sewing kit and sew during program. After watching her sew for a while, I asked if she would be interested in repairing some fraying and tears in our chairs in the quiet area. The child took on the tasks with incredible enthusiasm. The chairs were repaired and, more importantly, the child is now bringing a positive attitude to program every day and is always looking for ways to help staff and other children.” – Before & After School Program Site Director


Community Centers • Camp Fire’s 3 Community Centers served 130 children in 2013, the majority of which are from Title I schools • This program is available year-round at no cost to families

Our Community Garden

Safe Places to Grow Camp Fire’s Community Centers are located in the economically challenged neighborhoods of Mountain View and Fairview as well as the Cook Inlet Housing Authority’s Loussac Place. Centers provide vital support for low-income working parents and safe places for children to go. Research confirms that after school hours are the most high-risk time of day for crime by and against youth. Knowing their children are safe and cared for allows parents to better focus on improving their family’s economic stability.

Our staff works with youth to establish a foundation of resiliency, how to make healthy life choices, and develop employability skills that will allow them to thrive now and in the future.

Setting and Fulfilling a Goal “I was 10 years old when I decided I would work for Camp Fire when I grew up. My family was living in the old Loussac Manor and I was going to Camp Fire’s Community Center Program after school. In 2013, that childhood dream came true. Being able to go back to where I grew up and to play that supportive role I admired so much in my Camp Fire staff is an amazing experience. As a staff member, I feel a special sense of belonging, and my purpose is all the more intentional. I am aware of how the opportunities I had as a child helped me be more confident in myself and others. Today, it’s as if I can see myself in each of the kids – their eagerness to learn and experience new things, their persistence in activities, and their enthusiasm.” I have also learned that this job is so much more than just taking care of kids. It’s an ongoing process of planning, creating, teaching, mentoring and evaluating. I continue to learn with Camp Fire! – Community Center Program Staff

Rural Program

• Served 2,075 youth in 2013 • Visited 27 communities • Offered 64 weeks of programming • Focused on cold-water and boating safety, dental health, nutrition and cooking, outdoor recreation, healthy life choices, and team building

Learning About Healthy Food Choices

Practicing Healthy Outdoor Activities

Wise Kids in Alaska In addition to cold water and boating safety, dental health and other day camp activities, our 2013 Rural Program staff took the “Wise Kids” curriculum out to more than 2,000 youth. Wise Kids establishes a foundation for healthy life choices as kids and adults. In rural Alaska communities, dental decay, obesity and diabetes have been climbing over the last few decades, Today, between 27% and 40% of youth here are overweight or obese, and dental decay is 4.5 times higher than the national average. The Wise Kids program offers hour-long sessions, with 15 minutes of self-directed learning on a topic, 15 minutes of group learning, and 30 minutes of active play. Youth responded enthusiastically to the fun and engaging lessons on portion size, the food groups, healthy eating, and exercise choices. Each community held a healthy living competition in which youth were awarded points for making good food choices, daily exercise and water consumption. Staff reported that children would often knock on their doors after program hours to talk about how much water they drank or to show them the number of steps on their pedometers that day. Camp Fire is grateful to General Mills for a grant supporting the program and to ExxonMobil for providing backpacks and BP for providing water bottles.

Establishing a Growth Mindset

“The kids learned alternative healthy activities to use their time during the day. Obesity is a problem here and Camp Fire gave options to help kids make healthy decisions.” – Program Coordinator, liamna/Newhalen Clinic


Summer Camps Thriving in the Great Outdoors Research shows that children who attend summer camp are more resilient, confident, competent, independent, and socially connected. Camp Fire’s summer programs give youth opportunities to experience growth through challenge.

Team building activity at Camp Si-La-Meo

• Together, our three summer programs served 1,567 youth in 2013 • 578 youth attended Camp K on Kenai Lake • 521 youth attended Camp Si-La-Meo • 468 youth attended Summer Adventure Program

Allowing Change to Happen “Every week my niece came home talking of new experiences, new things she tried, and all the great counselors that did not baby her but, rather, expanded her inner adventurous child: jumping off a diving board without needing a life vest; saying “yes” to getting in a canoe and even tipping it; allowing others to get close enough to bond with her; a desire to be healthy and take a walk; an imagination and wish to create things from the nature that lay around her. She was more open to embracing nature and respecting it, more open to speaking up and being her own, individual self. Thank you!” – Camp Fire Parent

Overcoming Challenges “I love that Camp Fire accommodates special needs children in all its programs.” – Camp Fire Parent

Having Fun While Learning “I was extremely pleased with the program. My daughter was having fun and busy, and I wasn’t worried about her at all. She loved it! She’s been to other summer programs and liked them well enough, but you guys knocked it out of the park!.” – Camp Fire Parent

Camp K Partner Groups

Operation Purple Camp

All Kids Can Go To Camp In addition to regular summer camp sessions, Camp K provides special summer camp programs for Alaskan youth through community partnerships. Agencies and groups in the community host the camps and Camp Fire Alaska provides a range of contracted support, from full use of our facilities and equipment, to complete turn-key summer camp experiences.

American Diabetes Association Camp

We look forward to growing these partnerships, and the re-development of Camp K that was completed in 2013 (see next page) will allow us to accommodate campers with a wider range of special physical and medical needs.

Partner Camps • Operation Purple Camp: for children of deployed military parents, co-sponsored by the National Military Family Association • ADA Camp: for children with juvenile diabetes, sponsored by the American Diabetes Association

Camp ARCTIC

• Camp ARCTIC (ARthritis Can’t Tame my Independence and Courage): for children who have juvenile idiopathic arthritis and their parents, sponsored by a coalition including the Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium, the Alaska Native Medical Center, and the Children’s Hospital at Providence • Peninsula Puffers Asthma Camp: for children with asthma, sponsored by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of Alaska and the Central Peninsula General Hospital • North Star Behavioral Health Camp: for clients of the pediatric behavioral health agency • Alaska Children’s Services Camp: for clients of the pediatric psychiatric services agency

Camp K Dedication

Building on a New Foundation

Camp K Staff at Season Opening

Camp K on Kenai Lake first opened in 1964 (under the name Camp Kushtaka), using cabins that had been retired by the U.S. Forest Service. Ingenuity and elbow grease allowed Camp Fire Alaska to keep those buildings in service more than 45 years longer, but it was pretty clear by the late 1990s that the camp was in serious need of an overhaul. Camp Fire Alaska launched “The Campaign to Make it Possible,” in 2008, and raised the $3.25 million needed to redevelop the buildings and infrastructure at Camp K. The Campaign, and construction, concluded in 2013 and on May 31st more than 100 Camp Fire Alaska supporters and alumni gathered at camp to celebrate. Following a blessing of the land by a representative of the local Kenaitze Tribe, CEO Barb Dubovich thanked the major donors and long list of supporters of the project.

Building Dedication

The Rasmuson Foundation, major contributors to the project, made a surprise switch in the Community Hall naming. At the end of the ceremony they changed out the new building’s sign, which bore their name, to one they preferred: Dubovich Community Hall, in recognition of Camp Fire Alaska CEO Barb Dubovich’s service to the youth in Alaska, Camp Fire, and the camp redevelopment project. The new facilities include a large community dining hall building, wheelchair accessible cabins, a medical center, showers, and flush toilets and will help Camp Fire serve a wider section of the Alaska community, including those with special health needs, and will allow Camp Fire to continue offering quality outdoor programming here for another 50 years— and even longer.
